Calendar Grid/Bits & Pieces Blog Hop


hanukkah decor
I am happy to present my project for a special designer blog hop using Tami’s new set Calendar Grid & Calendar Bits & Pieces
For my project today, I chose to highlight just a few of the stamps in the bits and pieces set – the small menorah image and sentiment, “Happy Hanukkah” for some home decor {Verve Stamps Home for the Holidays challenge}.  Last week, I made a card using this set for a co-worker of my husband’s who is Jewish, which she really liked (I failed to take a picture of it before she purchased it though) and she mentioned to him that it was too pretty to give away and she thought about displaying it in her home.  I thought that was nice but told John to let her know I can make something that is really home decor for her to display.  This is what I came up with.  I also used Tami’s other set, Special Delivery for the postage outline.  After I stamped, I lightly rubbed some silver metallic rub on paste using a mask I created.  I used the textile cuttlebug folder on the blue cardstock and finished it off with silver cording in the inside.  The frame is from Dollar Tree which I purchased over a year ago (a lot of them because I knew the deep frame would allow me to make lots of nice decor and not be limited with dimension).
